Food Review: Hokkaido Cheese Toast

I was in Mall Of Asia with a friend when I saw this staff selling Japanese-inspired toasted bread having aesthetically pleasing cheese fillings. Say Chizu! Here’s a quick review of Hokkaido Cheese Toast.

What is Hokkaido Cheese Toast?

The Hokkaido Cheese Toast is a famed brand abroad known for its flavorful cheese and milk. At the same time, they offer Instagram worthy toasts thanks to its long stretchy toasted cheese recipe. Originally, this kind of toast came from Hokkaido in Japan and their original recipe has been brought here in the Philippines through a franchise.


Original – 119 pesos
Chocolate Cheese – 119 pesos
Strawberry Cheese – 119 pesos
Unicorn Fruit Toast – 139 pesos


The stall is quite simple but the aesthetics of the shop actually look like it is a bread house (which it is) and it welcomes you for a much-awaited French cheese toast. It’s a sure thing that it will catch your attention because of its bright yellow color in the middle of the Entertainment Mall almost facing the seaside area of the Mall of Asia.


I bought the rainbow-colored toast which is the Unicorn Fruit Toast at 139 pesos. I placed my order and waited for about five minutes only until they called my number. Until then, they handed me a toast in a paper bag– which I thought will be put in a cute bear-like sandwich box, as to how they used to promote it online– but yes, I got this paper bag and it turned too oily even before I got to eat the bread.

The toast is given that it’s gonna be oily so the packaging is already filled with oil as I eat. The fruit taste is too strong that it tastes more of bubble gum. I should have ordered the classic one which is the regular cheese. Since it is a well-known brand, I kinda expected that it is overpriced compared to the regular brands but I am not really happy with how their taste turned out to be. I can’t seem to taste the cheese too.

Ella’s Recommendation

Yep, the toast is Instagram-worthy so if you are up for the photos, this is the perfect bread to eat but since I came here for the taste, I am not really into this bread. Despite my love for cheese, I still can’t appreciate the hype for this one. Trying this once is probably enough already.

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
